On Tuesday, Buffalo announced the launch of its new LinkStation 400 series network storage devices. The LinkStation 400 Series provides secure central storage and backup, with the ability to organize and protect content, and stream media or access files from multiple computers, smartphones, and tablets.
The 400 series offers up to 8TB of storage and is available for both Mac and PC. The device easily connects to a wireless router providing high capacity centralized storage. Equipped with its own processor the LinkStation 400 series boasts transfer speeds up to 100 MB/s. Additionally, Buffalo’s new storage system is DLNA Certified, meaning that the device can be used as an iTunes server and it features an integrated BitTorrent Client for simplified media storage and direct P2P sharing. The LinkStation 400 series also offers free WEbAcess cloud service allowing users to connect over the internet or on mobile devices. Free mobile apps for the cloud service are available on Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.
